Headphone Contest - Winner announced Answered

Picture of

Hey guys, I'm putting a spare three month pro subscription up for grabs, because I collected three in as many days. 

So to win the three month subscription you'll need to come up with an awesome project based around headphones, it has to have been published after this topic and mustn't be a rehash of the same project you did a month before... 

Feel free to take the theme loosely though it's just got to involve headphones. 

As soon as you've published your instructable comment with a link to it. 

Contest ends on the 30th of june, when I'll be lying in the sun with my girlfriend making her help me choose the winner. 

RANDOM PRIZE - If I can afford to give another membership away there will also be a random prize given out at the end of the contest. 

Patches for all participants in the contest, out of my personal stack, so hopefully I don't run out. 

***UPDATE***

It was a tough thing to decide, I loved the quirkiness of have knit headphones, think the idea of having freedom with headphone choice and bluetooth was cool, the versatility of having a volume control for everything but overall my love of blinking lights won and I chose the Led music synched headphones, mainly because the idea was cool and because I like the thought of making this with a big pair of headphones to make glowing domes on my head. Congratulations plugable 

I hope to run more contests like this, only having four entries was a bit disappointing but I suppose it's tricky getting started... With any luck I'll eventually have really awesome contests...

Good idea Raven!

I came up with something similar for my headphones too! (Studio Beats by Dr Dre)
The cord on mine would keep snagging on things at work and it would rip out the cord from the headphones. Almost pulled my iPhone out of my pocket once!! ahh!!

now only if I could find my parts bin, and the time to try this :(

These are really quite nice, they aren't mine and it isn't a full 'ible... But they sure are beautiful.

If you are accepting non 'ible entries, you should shoot this guy a PM.

You're allowed to enter as many as you want but it's got to be a new instructable so that one doesn't count... nice project though.

I might try this. Can you also do something with in-ear silicon headphones or does it have to be a pair of those bulky ones?
